Editorial Reviews

Review

...a witty, breezy, utterly confident variation on color street work in the tradition of diCorcia, Meyerowitz, and Winogrand. -- Vince Aletti, Photograph, November/December 2003

The Company of Strangers, showcases (Powell's) subtle, unassuming art... delicate patterns... like a dance, run through the work. -- Marmalade magazine (UK), Fall 2003

What most New Yorkers regard as a tolerable nuisance, photographer Gus Powell sees as a vital stage for unpredictable dramas. -- Print magazine, March/April 2004

this is a decent book, but check out Robert Walker first - his new york stuff from the '80s being much stronger work if you can find it. powell's photos are rather shallow and mediocre compared with great street photographers and/or colorists of the past (eggleston, meyerwitz, shore, etc.) and present (walker, webb, manos). if you don't own those guys' books, get them first.

in this book's defense, it's well put together and published.

...as is most comtemporary color work (see CREWDSON) which makes an already elitist and rich man's game even more so with elaborate sets and million dollar prints the size of a house. but seriously, check out ROBERT WALKER if you are interested in this kind of colour street woyk. in the end, it's a worthy addition, why not?
